Microbia: A Journey into the Unseen World Around You
Rodale Press, April 2018
(hardcover, 272 pages) 978-1623367350
While researching her book about mushrooms, Eugenia Bone became fascinated with microbes—those life forms that are too small to see without a microscope. Specifically, she wanted to understand the microbes that live inside other living organisms like plants and people. But as she began reading books, scholarly articles, blogs, and even attending an online course in an attempt to grasp the microbiology, she quickly realized she couldn’t do it alone.
That’s why she enrolled at Columbia University to study Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology. Her stories about being a middle-aged mom embedded in undergrad college life are spot-on and hilarious. But more profoundly, while Bone went back to school to deepen her understanding of her own biology, what she learned is biology is a vast conspiracy of microbes. Microbes invented living and as a result they are implicated in every aspect of every life. This popular science book is a microbiology primer that takes the layman on a broad survey of the role of microbes in nature and illustrates their importance to the existence of everything: atmosphere, soil, plants, and us.
